(b. Dresden, May 6, 1 8 1 9 ; d. Doberan, near Rostock, July 19, 1900), writer on music, showed a decided predilection for music while still a pupil at the Kreuzschule. He received lessons in harmony and counterpoint from Julius Otto and Moritz Hauptmann, and in pianoforte and organ-playing from J. G. Schneider. In 1846 he made a prolonged stay in Italy for the purpose of musical study, especially of the older vocal music. On his return he founded and conducted a Caecilien-Verein or mixed choir for the performance of older vocal works. In 1860 he received the first prize from the Maatschappij tot bevordering der Toonkunst in Amsterdam (Society for the Furtherance of Music) for his valuable monograph on ' Mattheus le Maistre,' a former Kapellmeister to the court of Saxony. In the same year he accepted the invitation from the Grand Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Friedrich Franz II., to be musical director of the Schloss-kapelle at Schwerin. The Schloss-chor, which was organised on similar principles to the Berlin Domchor, was brought by Kade to a high pitch of artistic refinement. During the same time he was entrusted with the musical editorship of the Cantionale fu r die evangelisch-lutherischen Kirchen im Orossherzogtum Mecklenburg-Schwerin, which appeared in parts from 1868-87. Along with this Cantional he also published a ' Chora(buch ' for four voices, harmonised on the strict diatonic system of the lfith century. The first edition of this ' Chora(buch ' appeared in 1869, a second in 1886. It appears to have been Kade who gave the first impulse to the foundation by Eitner of the Gesellschaft fur Musikforschune, which led to the publication of the Monatshefte fu r Musikgeschichte from 1869. Kade edited for the Gesellschaft Johann Walther's Wittenbergisch geistlich Oesanbuch of 1524, and was joint-editor with Eitner and Erk of Ott's Liederbuch of 1544. In 1862 Kade had been commissioned by the firm of Leuckart, the publishers of Ambros's Geschichte der Musik, to edit a supplementary volume, containing specimens of the most celebrated masters of the 15th and 16th centuries. This volume only appeared in 1882, but represents the fruits of many years' research in the various libraries of Italy and Germany. In 1892 he published a volume entitled Die alteren Passionskom'positionen bis zum Jahre 1631 (Giitersloh, 1892), which gives an account of the various compositions of the Passion in the 16th century, and gives the actual notes of the Obrecht, Walther and Scandelli Passions. As part of his official work at Schwerin he published, in 1896, a Catalogue of the Grand-Ducal Musical Collection. Other works of Kade are Der neu-aufgefundene Luther- Codex (with facsimiles), 1871, and Die deutsche vol. m weltliche Liedweise, 1872. He retired from active service in 1893.

Dresden, Sept. 25, 1859), son of the above, became professor of the Royal Gymnasium at Dresden and compiled the catalogue of the musical collection in the Royal Library (1890). He contributed the results of his researches to the publications of the Int. Mus. Ges. (Riemann).
